NFCC launches Coaching and Mentoring toolkit

NFCC's Coaching and Mentoring toolkit has been created to support a national approach and culture of coaching and mentoring within the fire sector. The toolkit provides support, guidance and templates, whether it’s setting up a programme, or looking to enhance an existing scheme. 

Coaching and Mentoring can be transformative when it comes to developing colleagues, particularly current and future leaders. Both disciplines are widely used across the sector with many excellent examples of best practice, with benefits including:

  • Supporting an individual’s potential and growth
  • Supporting individuals to improve their own performance
  • Providing career support
  • Enhanced problem solving and decision-making skills
  • Developing current and future leaders
  • Handling conflict situations so that they are resolved effectively
  • Employee engagement and satisfaction

The Coaching and Mentoring toolkit has been designed to bring together internal best practices from the fire sector, along with external research, providing tools, guidance and templates to support the adoption and / or enhancement of Coaching and Mentoring within the Fire and Rescue Service.

Fire Services contributed towards the development of the toolkit through the national survey, workshops or document consultations. These helped shape the quality of the product and we are grateful to those services.
